Yonhap News Agency, Seoul, November 23. A person from the Special Investigation Headquarters of the Korean Police Agency stated on the 23rd that the "golden time" for rescuing the wounded after the Itaewon stampede was initially determined to be about 45 minutes after the incident, that is, around 11:00 p.m. He also believes that if appropriate rescue measures can be taken in time during this period, it will not cause a large number of deaths.

It is reported that Cui Chengfan, director of the Yongsan Fire Department, instructed the on-site command team leader to initiate a first-level fire emergency response at 10:43 pm 28 minutes after the incident on the 29th of last month, and announced his personal command at 11:08 pm that night. The Ministry believes that there is also a problem with the response of the on-site command team leader before the command of the fire department chief. It is understood that at 11:00 p.m. on the night of the accident, the head of the on-site command team said on the fire wireless phone that "the pedestrian who fell from behind is being quickly lifted up and led to a safe place. The situation is expected to end later." According to the investigation department According to this judgment, the head of the on-site command team had requested assistance from the rescue team in the nearby area before the director of the fire department announced his personal command, and he may not have accurately judged the situation at the time. The headquarters filed a case and investigated the on-site command team leader on suspicion of professional negligence.

The investigation headquarters plans to summon Cui Chengfan again on the 26th of this month to focus on investigating how he conducted on-site command after launching the second-level fire emergency response. The head of the Seoul Fire and Disaster Headquarters issued a second-level (more than 10 casualties) and third-level (more than 20 casualties) fire emergency response at 11:13 pm and 11:48 pm, respectively. Cui Chengfan emphasized that the situation at the scene was critical at that time, so the fire emergency response could not be directly activated, but it was not too late for the second-level fire emergency response.

The Investigation Headquarters also believes that the safety team of the fire department may not have followed the fire safety measures formulated by the Yongsan Fire Department on the eve of Halloween to stick to the designated workplace – in front of the Hamilton Hotel. The Ministry stated that the security measures clearly defined the scope of security work and inspections, and designated the front of the Hamilton Hotel as the venue for security work. (Finish)
